As seen in The Wall Street Journal—from free play to cozy together time, discover the parenting secrets of the happiest people in the world
What makes Denmark the happiest country in the world—and how do Danish parents raise happy, confident, successful kids, year after year? This upbeat and practical book presents six essential principles, which spell out P-A-R-E-N-T:
Play is essential for development and well-being.
Authenticity fosters trust and an "inner compass."
Reframing helps kids cope with setbacks and look on the bright side.
Empathy allows us to act with kindness toward others.
No ultimatums means no power struggles, lines in the sand, or resentment.
Togetherness is a way to celebrate family time, on special occasions and every day. The Danes call this hygge—and it's a fun, cozy way to foster closeness. Preparing meals together, playing favorite games, and sharing other family traditions are all hygge. (Cell phones, bickering, and complaining are not!)
With illuminating examples and simple yet powerful advice, The Danish Way of Parenting will help parents from all walks of life raise the happiest, most well-adjusted kids in the world.

"An understated urgency gives Kim Mai Guest's performance a measure of gravitas that is not out of place with this eye-opening audiobook. Yet, aided by her pleasing tone and diction, she also sounds calm and centered as she describes the stark contrasts between Danish parenting and the overstriving practices we see in the U.S. The authors distill Danish parenting values into six principles represented by the acronym P-A-R-E-N-T: play, authenticity, reframing, empathy, no ultimatums, and togetherness. With the main author saying that she started her research because her own maternal instincts were wanting, the discussion benefits from her "beginner's mind" as well as from Guest's calm engagement. This essential parenting resource brings us back to basics without sounding simplistic or preachy. T.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
